spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2004
The Jamacian Guiness. A very dark stout, but not too bad for a foreign stout. 7.5 is pretty good ABV.

argo0 (11814) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 3, 2004
Non-oily black body with medium brown head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, anise, molasses. Taste is moderately sweet, anise, light roasty, finishing anise and alcohol. Medium body with some stickiness to it.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - FEB 15, 2004
Thick black stout with a nice dark tan head. Malt and liquorice aroma. Flavor is sweet at first with a dry bitter hoppy finish. Roasted malt and chocolate notes. Very carbonated. Mild and nice but maybe a little too thin.

Crockett (1022) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2004
Boozey aroma, dark brown/red. Licorice and booze. Chocolate malty with molases. Floral notes. Warming with a nice mouth feel. Never had a tropical stout before. I thought it was tastey overall.

Tessic (917) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2004
This one poured black with a nice soapy/creamy tan head. Alcohol, wine and molasses with a little chocolate and coffee. First taste was smooth with a little wine/alcohol taste. The finish was of roasted molasses. Almost a warming alcohol flavour. Leeds me to wonder if its not higher than 7%? The palate was smooth with lingering coffee flavours.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2004
UPDATED: APR 26, 2004 Appearance: Pours nearly black Aroma: Licorice Flavor/Taste: First sip is a stunner - palate quickly adjusts.Thick, sweet and warm. Palate/Mouthfeel: Oily Impressions: This is a sweet one - must have dropped many lumps of that cane sugar into the mix.

SpringsLicker (3191) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2004
One of the better Caribbean Style Stouts. Powerful and thick, but a little too sweet to be refreshing. Still one of the better ones to be found in the Tropics if you like the style.

Boutip (4956) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2003
300ml Bottle - Jet black brew with a nice dark head with good retention. Nose of alcohol and roastiness is very pleasant. Coffee and chocolate aftertaste. Good body and high alcohol taste give it a good edge. One of the best foreign stout I've tasted.

Lubiere (10603) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2003
Nice vinous alcool nose. Deep deep black and viscous. Chocolates and raisins assault the mouth, with warm alcool. Without the colour reference, some people claimed this tasted like a belgian brown....believe it.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2003
Jet black hue with a fast disappating light brown head. Coffee and chocolate aromas. Fantastic coffee and chocolate taste with raisiny tones. A good stout.
